here are the lyrics to careful i think they really fit:
I settle down
A twisted-up frown
Disguised as a smile
Well, you would have never known
I had it all, but not what I wanted
'Cause hope for me was a place uncharted
And overgrown

You make your way in
I resist you just like this
You can't tell me to feel
The truth never set me free
So I did it myself

You can't be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach a little more
More, more, more, more

Open your eyes
Like I open mine
It's only the real world
Life you will never know
Shifting your weight to throw off the pain
Well, you can ignore it
But only for so long

You look like I did
You resist me just like this
You can't tell me to heal
And it hurts remembering
How it felt to shut down

Can't be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach a little more
More, more, more, more

The truth never set me free
The truth never set me free
The truth never set me free
So I'll do it myself

You can't be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach out

Can't be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
You won't come any closer
You've got to reach out more
More, more, more, more

Those are cool!
Anyone heard of a band called Mew? They did a song called "Special" which, (naturally) fits well with Specials. (Or I think so anyway) Here are the lyrics:

You're special
You're like rocket through me
Ohh, you're special
You're a rocket to me
And I cannot this time

Agarina
You can't say no
Agarina
This time you will go

You're special
You're like a rocket through me
Ohh, you're special
You're a rocket to me
And I cannot this time

There's a taste that you can't shake
But you can't seem to let them go awry
I know you're special
You're a rocket to me
At this surprised
All the time

There's more, but I couldn't find the rest.
Mostly the tone of the song is what makes it fit with the tone of the book.

Mad World- Michael Andrews.
so perfect its ridiculous
"children waiting for the day they'll feel good. happy birthday. happy birthday." plus all the other lyrics.

ya it dose kinda fit

OMG! I LOVE THAT SONG!!! hehe

And Mad World is originally by Tears for Fears...then got covered by Gary Jules for Donnie Darko...(and so I just did a quick google and I guess Michael Andrews recorded the cover WITH Gary Jules...but yeah...)

I love Tears for Fears version better...they're so great live...and such an awesome band...and their version is so ironically upbeat.



also, I think the whole first Savage Garden CD fits both Uglies and Pretties perfectly.

and Dig by Incubus has always perfectly described Tally and David for me.

DIG lyrics:
We all have a weakness
But some of ours are easy to identify.
Look me in the eye and ask for forgiveness;
We'll make a pact to never speak that word again
Yes you are my friend.

We all have something that digs at us,
At least we dig each other
So when weakness turns my ego up
I know you'll count on the me from yesterday

If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me
Sing this song
Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone.

We all have a sickness
That cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try.

We all have someone that digs at us,
At least we dig each other
So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you'll act as a clever medicine.

If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone.

Oh each other....
When everything else is gone.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ohh
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh

If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we'll always have each other
When everything else is gone.

Oh each other....
When everything else is gone.
Oh each other....
When everything else is gone.

I can tell I'm quite a bit older than most of you, but  I have read almost all of Scott's books and enjoyed them all...
Anyway, I have been trying to get my 12 year old daughter to read Uglies and so on without much luck, but she picked up So Yesterday on the way to school. I had just finished it and was planning to return it to the library but after reading the cover she thought she would give it a try.

She loved it! She even used her own money to buy multi-colored shoe strings and started creating new designs with the lacing. She thinks she figured out the Eiffel tower design and goes on about how she is an innovator. I don't think a real innovator would care if they were an innovator or not.

We have more in common than we ever choose to see.

That is random:)
I find So Yesterday easier to get into than Uglie.s They are both  really good (I assume, I just started "So Yesterday") but Uglies takes a while. I had Uglies since I was 10 and I only finished the book in september. I was/still am 13.

And I am glad that your daughter and you enjoyed that together:)

Post by: ReineDeVampire on January 14, 2010, 08:01:52 AM
Well if your daughter likes So Yesterday she might give the others a try. I started reading Scotts books when I was 14.



And phewy you guys. All with the hippedy hop >.<

i know it was orginally by tears for fears and that michael andrews recorded it for donnie darko and all but i think soft piano in that cover fits uglies better than the tears for fears version

i also think that for pretties set fire to the third bar by snow patrol and martha wainwright it reminds me of when tally and zane are separated and tally is getting to the smoke for him
Title: Re: Uglies series playlist
Post by: Rosiewa on January 14, 2010, 09:54:40 AM
ooooo Such Great Heights reminds me of David And Tally if you think about it, it's kinda like them riding their hoverboards!!!!! i love iron and wine, however i believe since The Postal Service is more technoie(good word right?) it fits more since Uglies is in the future.

lets make a playlist!

uglies: Got Dynamite- Demi Lovato (yes I am serious, listen to it, it will surprise  you as how good it is)
pretties: Misery Buisness Paramore
Specials: Careful Pframore (very icy)
Extras: Fences- Paramore


omg i luv paramore <3  awesome playlist, i havent heard the one by Demi tho, for Pretties a good song would be Everybody's Fool by Evanescence, Uglies seems a little more like Misery Buisness only because of the line "shes got a body like an hour glass its tickin like a clock" that seems almost like an Ugly describing a Pretty. for Specials I agree with Careful and Fences for Extras. For the Pretty Commitee mabye Playing God by Paramore because thats what it seems like they're doing! any non-bubbleheaded Pretty could see that.

A Paramore fan? Awesome!
Everybody's fool would be good too for pretties as well as Brick By Boring Brick by Paramore.
Misery buisness does fit Uglies! Not only the "body like an hourglass" part but also because Tally stole David from Shay, who in the end turns pretty! and Playing God works too!!!

how about coldplay- fix you? everyone is always trying to fix tally and she's constantly going through difficult times and trying to get back to being happy and "normal"
